Welcome to my online portfolio!

My name is Tawanna Saxton and I am a graduate of  Rutgers Graduate School of Education.  This past spring, I completed my final semester of graduate school,  where I am earned my Ed.M in Elementary Education with a specialization in Mathematics. In the future, I aim to secure an elementary or middle school math teaching position in a school that values differentiated instruction and the infusion of technology.

As a psychology major and graduate student, I have pursued a varied course of study that has provided me with a significant understanding of child development and pedagogy. While working in elementary classrooms, I have had the opportunity to observe a variety of teaching styles and to teach in schools with widely varying curricula and philosophies. I have benefited from the advice of teachers, learning specialists, and administrators in very different classroom environments, both urban and suburban.

This e-portfolio represents my journey through the Teacher Education Program at Rutgers. As a growing work in progress, this portfolio will continue to evolve as I continue my development as both a teacher and learner. As the result of countless hours engaged in analytical reflection, this portfolio provides insight into the knowledge and skills I have acquired throughout my journey. I hope that this portfolio will assist you in understanding who I am not only as a prospective teacher, but a person as well.
